The Vuyani Safari Lodge is located on the Moditlo Wildlife Estate within the Blue Canyon Conservancy which is more than 36,000 acres in size. Located within the Greater Kruger National Park area, at the foot of the Drakensberg mountain range, Vuyani Safari Lodge is one of South Africa's premier safari lodges, in the country's most famous area for African wildlife. The Vuyani Safari Lodge is one of only 2 licensed lodges on this reserve, and with only 10 suites, it offers one of the most exclusive safari experiences in South Africa. The reserve offers a unique opportunity to observe all of Africa's large game such as the lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, hippo and crocodile as well as some of the very rarest species, amongst others the wild dog, the brown hyena, the ground hornbill, cheetahs and several other highly endangered animals. Almost 400 various species of birds have been counted. Some of the rarest European migratory birds visit the reserve in the European winter months.

We had a wonderful time at Vuyani Lodge. We booked through Secret Escapes and from when the driver collected us from Johannesburg airport, until when they dropped us back off, we were looked after wonderfully. The staff at the Lodge are friendly and helpful. Because there are a

I booked with Vuyani for my honeymoon and honestly I am so pleased that I did! There are some things in life you will experience which you will struggle to find the words to explain how they made you feel, and this is definitely one of those places! Vuyani is just exceptional

My husband and I booked Vuyani as a short break after a wedding in South Africa - and we are so glad we did. We had done a safari previously in Kenya and we enjoyed this just as much. The lodge itself was stunning , the bedrooms comfortable and spacious and the food was great.

Myself and my fiancee just returned from a 7 night all inclusive stay at Vuyani. I cannot put in to words how amazing the experience was. All of the staff are amazingly helpful, friendly, polite and well mannered. They couldn't do enough for us during our stay. We say all of

We visited Vuyani in early February this year. I have been following this lodge for several years now on Facebook. They were fully booked when we travelled to Hoedspruit two years ago and we ended up in another lodge which was good but nothing like as good as the Vuyani

Hello, The Sky View Tents are not part of the Vuyani Safari Lodge resort, they belong to the Vuyani Tented Camp resort, it is the same company but two different hotels as such. The Tented Camp has its own pool, it has its own bar and serves traditional South African (Brai) every evening in the Boma. The camp will open in April so by then you will be able to find much more information online, until then it is best to contact the Vuyani Booking office directly. Camp enquiries can be directed to enquiries @ vuyanitentedcamp . com Hope this helps :)

Hello do you have Cheetah and lions on your reserve ?
Hi, short answer : Yes! :) We have several Cheetah on the reserve of which two brothers who chose to make their territory on the terrain we traverse on :) Makes for great sightings. We also have a growing lion pride who currently has split into two groups.

There is no one answer. It depends upon your family situation. The Answers should be on gov.uk website. Allow a bit more time at the airport to present your paperwork, just incase of any delays in the queue.

One driver warned us that the local police target hire cars for bribes. It seemed they get paid very little and are on the look out for bribes, drinks, sweeteners! Lots of big deep potholes but very light traffic. Spectacular scenery so enjoy. Long distances between petrol stations. Don't drive at night.
